"You can be the gentleman and shoot the lady and starve to death yourself."
This pirate decided not to starve.
That line from the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was the inspiration for this simple MOC.
Comments welcome but I don't think I'll be changing much. I'll be busy working on my large entry.

And your inspiration from the PotC good too I think. Funny idea.

I can't think of anything to improve, since as you said, it's pretty simple. I'm looking forward to seeing your large entry!

Except I would do this: for the sake of realism, I would add a source of fresh water (like a large bottle or something) since one can't drink seawater and eating without drinking doesn't keep you alive. Also a knife is needed, or did that brute rip her apart with his bare hands ?

This pirate decided not to starve.
i guess this means that the pirate ate the lady?
I do not think the plate is necessary but it would cover the green spot if you want it covered.
I really like your palm tree. How did you get it to bend? Is there any support in the center? The only thing I thing you could add would be a turkey leg or two if you have one. Great work Fat Tony!

studs on top!! yeah!
i think is a good work.. overall is a good idea, well build... funny to see.. a clear shoot
maybe and just an idea to improve.. use some gray and green(but just a little) to make the island more than just the palm (love that)..

What I like:
The pirate that ate a person alive certainly shows cruelty! Nice job on both the palm tree and the blood.
What could be improved:
I think you could add a little something in the water to add some detail, like a shark, perhaps.
But it is a very cruel entry, Fat Tony, and good luck!

I like your inspiration from "The Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. Good face expression use in your MOC. Is that an Exo-Force head? If so, it looks really good with your MOC. The palm tree looks like it took the longest to make and it turned out really good. I like how the pirate is eating the villagers arm.
1) I think you should put some yellow tiles down on the sand to give it a smoother effect.
2) I don't think the pirate could have eaten that villager so fast. You could have a normal torso and leave the rest skeleton parts to make it look like the pirate has already eaten the body parts.
3) Have something floating in the water so there is not a plain look.
4) You could have a rainbow parrot sitting in the tree or vultures waiting to eat the leftovers.
Overall- I really like how a movie inspired you to create this MOC and it has come out great. I think you have a great job creating your MOC. I wish you the best of luck!

The water ran out a while ago and the bottle was shattered to use the shards for "carving".
Because as any good cannibal knows, dinner is a little easier to stomach with less of a reminder that this used to be a person. Thus removal of the head is a must.
That sounded creepy.
